Real Ales and Beers | The Old Cannon Brewery

If you love real ale then you are in for a treat for we brew beer on site.  The Good Beer Guide has described us as THE place to go for real ale in Bury St Edmunds.

Our unique, state-of-the-art, stainless steel brewing vessels are a stunning feature of the bar itself.  Our beers are made from East Anglian grown and malted barley, choice English hops and a special house yeast and we brew once or twice a week, usually on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday lunchtime when you can sit sipping the results whilst watching the next brew in the making!

We always have our Best Bitter and Gunner's Daughter core beers available.  These are also complimented with one or more of our own seasonal beers, along with 1 or 2 guest beers from other regional breweries.
